Bananas and fresh strawberries make a great combination in this summery muffin! They’re so moist and full of delicious chunks of fresh strawberries. I love how the sprinkling of coarse sugar gives these muffin tops a little sparkle and crunchiness, too! I just did a light sprinkling, but you can do a heavier sprinkle if you want a real sugary top.
This recipe makes 11 to 12 regular-size muffins. The next time you have some ripe bananas and fresh strawberries on hand, keep these in mind! 🙂
